in Kham

(Eastern Tibet)

Nestled deep in the heartland of Kham, Chungba is a rural Tibetan township in which a broad-based effort is underway to revitalize the local community through education and capacity-building. Located in a forested stretch of mountains between the bustling county towns of Litang and Nyarong, the community of Chungba remains tied to a predominantly subsistence economy where most residents grow their own tsampa and herd livestock in high pastures. In its embrace of new models of learning while valuing traditional ways of life, Chungba’s experience points to new possibilities in cultural regeneration in rural Tibetan areas.
